To support this, a £100k University of Bristol Satellite Laboratory and ground station facility http://www.bris.ac.uk/news/2017/november/spaceexploration.html has recently been opened. The University also hosts the Space Universities Network https://www.spaceuniversitiesnetwork.ac.uk/ - a network of 25 universities with 48 members to support space engineering science and engineering higher education staff. 
 
The successful candidate will conduct research that is related to space related science and technologies and to provide high quality teaching and effective academic administration within the School. The post will be on Pathway 1 (see Section 7) at Lecturer (level b/c). Exceptionally, higher level appointments may be considered, given suitably qualified applicants.
 
Suitable candidates for the post will have a strong academic and/or industrial background in research related to space science and/or technologies. Preferably, they will have some experience in engineering industry and, ideally, in the space sector. Applicants must demonstrate an excellent knowledge of their research specialism and demonstrate plans to develop research and teaching activities and how this will link to and expand existing activities in the School.
